Disable Ad Blocker
I have tried to follow directions to disable ad blockers but there is no where to tell which one I have. Please help.

As jscher2000 says here,
Any time content is blocked, sites may accuse you of using an ad blocker. But that's not the only possible explanation.
You could start your investigation here:
(1) Built-in Tracking Protection feature (especially in private windows).
Do you see a shield icon toward the left end of the toolbar when this problem hits? More info on how to use the shield to manage blocking: What happened to Tracking Protection?.
(2) Content blocking extensions such as Adblock Plus, Blur, Disconnect, Ghostery, NoScript, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin or uMatrix.
Some of these provide toolbar buttons to manage blocked content in a page.
You can view, disable, and often configure or remove extensions on the Add-ons page. Either:
Ctrl+Shift+a (Mac: Command+Shift+a) "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons type or paste about:addons in the address bar and press Enter/Return
In the left column of the Add-ons page, click Extensions. Then cast a critical eye over the list on the right side. Any extensions that Firefox installs on its own are hidden from this page, so everything listed here is your choice (and your responsibility) to manage. Anything that could be blocking content from other sites ("third party" content)? If in doubt, disable.
Hope I helped!
No ad blockers are listed in More system details. Just Kaspersky.
